Not Quite Dutch

Rijswijk, Pays-Bas


After ten years in a very basic kitchen, we finally upgraded. To celebrate, we invited a number of people around for a series of dinners (I can only seat six). The menu was deliberately misleading: I gave the dishes names of traditional foods that the Dutch know and loathe... I mean love. They approached the table with some apprehension, but after a while were trying to figure out how else I could surprise them. The names were accurate and descriptive: just not quite what they were expecting!
I use organic ingredients where possible. the meal is served with white and red wines.
This particular meal must be booked well in advanced, as I need at least three days to prepare the meat course.
